Well up to now you have done jack shit. Get my inquiry yet? Plenty of people go around talking about doin shit but never do. Of course that would be a pretty bad generalization to assume everyone is like that but certainely plenty are.
I throw out a frame option I have seen in person, with a elocker. You dont know if it is damaged, nor do I. I saw the frame, didnt look for damage, but didnt notice anything at all; oh and you do realise it is possible to wreck a car, get it totaled with no frame damage right? It is a complete rolling frame, suspension and all. You wave it goodbye. You dont even express interest in just asking for the guys name or some shit. Dude, yes, "dude," (even in quotes for you) the frame is 50 miles north. Holy shit... not worth the 20 bucks in gas? You talkin about using a later model frame, talking about swapping spring bla bla bla bla bla. This one is set.
You may as well just go take a shit as your certainely show no interst in a very possible route.
